City of Opportunity

Maybe it’s not the signs but the message I find hard to swallow, especially since this is outside Belmont Forum. They also seem to be wading knee deep through manure, slowly sinking like some Belmontian La Brea tar pit. A little blurry, from a vehicle window as I didn’t want to stop in Belmont.

    I get the impression they are leaving. Wading across a swollen muddy river with their valuables above their heads. This is a story of disaster relief.


  2. lazyaussie says:

    You’re right meccano it does look like that. Or more likely, having looted the signs, they are carrying them off.

    Or is the right sign just missing the word “Shops” ?


  4. CK says:

    No, I think you’re right LA. They’re stealing “WeLcOmE” signs.

    Bit disturbed about the ’80’s wavy welded haircuts, though. This is a Belmont thing, right?

    I remember a funny story about Belmont.

    Many years ago the police Sargent who lived at the station had a very green thumb and particularly liked to grow poppies. Unfortunately it was discovered that the ones he had planted all across the front were of the illegal variety and were stolen.

    Aawww – look, the little bird is trying to protect his stuff as the looters run off with it

    It’s some Cloverdale hoods carrying a wheel and tyre stolen off a parked VP station wagon, in order to get theirs back on the road. Welcome to Belmont, where on a quiet evening you can hear the semi-automatic fire in the distance…

    Damn, everytime I go near Belmont, especially The Forum I fear for my friggin life. The place is dangerous.

    What’s up with you soft bastards?
    I lived in the area for years and never once had to knife anyone, tho’ I admit that the “Glasgow Kiss” came in useful on a couple of occasions.
